Pacific Gateway Center

The mission of Pacific Gateway Center is to empower low-income residents, immigrants, refugees and other vulnerable populations to achieve self-sufficiency through skill-building and access to opportunities while respecting cultural heritages.  As the majority of our immigrant clients are farmers from their respective home countries, leading self-sufficient lives means returning to the farm. Currently we lease 206 acres of farmland to refugee and immigrant families in Kunia.

Reno Food Systems

Reno Food Systems has partnered with Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space to operate a 5 acre vegetable farm at the northeast corner of the park along Mayberry Drive, just east of the historic ranch house property. This teaching campus will offer our farm interns hands-on experience growing high-density, organic crops in Northern Nevada’s arid climate. We call this project a “park farm” because we envision many more urban micro-farms popping up in under-utilized public spaces in Reno and Sparks.

Nevada Cattlemen’s Association

The Nevada Cattlemen’s Association is a non-profit trade association that was established in 1935. We provide a means for Nevada’s cattle industry to present a united front on issues that impact us all.

Our mission is to promote a dynamic and profitable Nevada beef industry which represents the interests of its producers and consistently meets the consumer’s needs while increasing Nevada’s market share.

The Association works hard to protect private property, vested water and grazing rights. We achieve this through increased public awareness of our industry, and agriculture in general.
